December 31, 2022

How can government rebuild trust with nonprofits serving historically marginalized communities? 
Assistant Professor Daniel Cheng co-authored a new paper on the subject: "Trust, Power, and Organizational Routines: Exploring Government's Intentional Tactics to Renew Relationships with Nonprofits Serving Historically Marginalized Communities." He collaborated with Jodi Sandfort, dean of the University of Washington Evans School of Public Policy and Governance and former professor at the Humphrey School. 

Their conclusion: By sharing resources and building trust with their nonprofit partners, government agencies and nonprofits collectively access more power for genuine public management reform to address systematic inequities.
